The Last of the Jamaican Germans#9733;

This is a fascinating story of the last of the Jamaican Germans and their community in Seaford Town, Westmoreland.

This documentary tells the story of German indentured servants that came to Jamaica many years ago and still have descendants living in a small village deep in the isolated mountains of rural Jamaica.

About Forgotten Faces (from the film maker)

“Forgotten Faces is a video documentary project that raises awareness of and celebrates the minority ethnic groups of the West Indies.

Many people are unaware of the existence of populations of Jamaicans and Haitians of white European, Chinese, East Indian, and Middle Eastern descent, living in Jamaica and Haiti.

These ethnic groups are diminishing in the West Indies, but have played important roles in the history of these countries and their culture.

 

Interesting video. 5 minutes in listen out for the “Chocolate babies” comment.
